Week 10 Power Rankings

You know what we’re doing….it’s in the title^^

This week, it’s just me (TheSportzGuru) and Sam Brief (http://sambrief.com/).


1. Packers 8-0 Packers- The Packers are still the only undefeated team in the league. Aaron Rodgers is having a career year, but can he lead them to an undefeated season? Only time will tell. thesportzguru @TheSportzGuru
2. 49ers 7-1 The astounding 49ers won against Washington this week. They lead the league in rush defense, allowing only 70 yards per game. Also, the San Francisco defense leads the league with an average of giving up 14 points per game. In the past 3 years, the defenses who gave up less than 15 points per game were the Steelers, Jets, and Steelers again. All of those teams went on to the Conference Championship Game. Sam’s Sports Brief @SamsSportsBrief
3. Ravens 6-2 The Ravens were able to sweep the Steelers this season. That took some heart and defensive prowess. Ray Lewis and Ed Reed are the leaders on this team, and boy are they doing a great job. http://stevessportscorner.wordpress.com/
4. Steelers 5-2 The Steelers are coming off of a heartbreaking loss at home to the Ravens. The Steelers fought hard in this game, but in the end their defense gave up a 92-yard game winning drive. As we know, this is an indisputably inconsistent team, but, with a top 5 scoring defense and a top 3 offense (in terms of yards), how can they not be #4? Sam’s Sports Brief @SamsSportsBrief
5. Giants 6-2  Giants fans were in for a wild ride last Sunday when Manning threw the go-ahead TD pass with one minute remaining. The Giants defense kept them in this game, and Manning was able to deliver at the end when it really counted. Tom Brady material? No, but pretty dang close. http://stevessportscorner.wordpress.com/
6. Patriots 5-3
 For once, there is a severe sense of concern in Foxborough. The Patriots are on a 2-game losing streak for the first time since 2009, and their offense has been stagnant. In the past  games they have scored 20 points or fewer 3 games in a row, the first time in 8 years. I remind you: TOM BRADY IS THEIR QUARTERBACK. If they play like this with terrific Tom taking snaps, then, that is trouble. The Patriots are 5-3, and if they lose this week, will be in 3rd place with a 5-4 record. Panic time…  Sam’s Sports Brief @SamsSportsBrief
7. Lions 6-2
The Lions were off this week and face the Bears next week. http://stevessportscorner.wordpress.com/
8. Bengals 6-2 This Bengals team is more surprising than the 49ers or Bills this year. The Bengals are a team that is 6-2, in first place in the toughest division in the NFL, and their 2 best offensive players are rookies. When they lost their franchise quarterback (Carson Palmer), and their 2 best receivers (Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens) there seemed to be no hope in Cincy. Andy Dalton has stepped up, A.J. Green has stepped up, and their defense (2nd in total defense) is playing better than ever.  Sam’s Sports Brief @SamsSportsBrief
9. Saints 6-3
The Saints played the Bucs last week and beat them at home 27-16. This offense will keep them in ANY game. If the defense just gets a bit better, watch out. http://stevessportscorner.wordpress.com/
10. Falcons 5-3
The Falcons are coming off of an expected win in Indianapolis. The Falcons are a very complete team, with Matt Ryan, Michael Turner, and Roddy white leading the charge on offense, this is a team that is firing on all cylinders. I would like to see the defense step up, though. Sam’s Sports Brief @SamsSportsBrief
11. Bills 5-3
The Bills lost to the NY Jets last week because they only scored 11 points. In their wins, they’ve scored a lot more (around 25). If they want to be a playoff team, 25 is the number they want to reach every game. http://stevessportscorner.wordpress.com/
12. Texans 6-3
The Texans are coming off of a 30-12 win against the Browns. The Texans are 6-3, and seem to be finally getting over the hump. All of this is happening without Andre Johnson. Since his injury, Houston is 4-2, and looking good. Just imagine how good they’ll be with their superstar… Sam’s Sports Brief @SamsSportsBrief
13. Jets 5-3
The Jets beat the Bills 27-11 last week. This keeps them in the race for the division with the Pats and the Bills. I think this Jets team has found it’s swagger back. http://stevessportscorner.wordpress.com/
14. Bears 5-3
 The Bears are coming off of a mammoth win over the Eagles in Philly. The Bears are now 5-3 and seem to be clicking on all aspects of the game. Matt Forte is second in the NFL in rushing yards, and in NFL history, no running back has accounted for a higher percentage of his teams’ offense. Jay Cutler has also turned around his game, and is looking like a star quarterback for the first time since he arrived in Chicago. Remember when the Bears were 2-3? I sure don’t. Sam’s Sports Brief @SamsSportsBrief
15.Chargers 4-4 The Chargers lost to Green Bay last week mainly because Rivers threw 3 picks, 2 of ’em going for Pick 6’s. The Chargers haven’t beaten anybody “credible” so far this year. They aren’t a good team. http://stevessportscorner.wordpress.com/
16. Bucs 4-3
Buccaneers- The Bucs are coming off of a loss at the hands of the charging Saints. Listen, this is a mediocre team with a good quarterback, a decent running back, and a weak supporting cast. Mix that in with a defense that is 29th in total defense, and you have a team that will simply hover around .500 and never make that turn into greatness.  Sam’s Sports Brief @SamsSportsBrief
17. Chiefs 4-4 I don’t know what happened to the Chiefs last week…they got blown out by MIAMI 31-3! Kansas City gave Miami their first W of the season, which isn’t something to be proud of.
18. Eagles 3-5 Philly is coming off of a Monday Night loss at home to the Bears. Just when people thought this team was going to turn around, they take a step back with a lackluster performance against Chicago. I don’t think the Eagles are a playoff team, and, even though they may fool us at times with their exeptional performances, they will never fool me.  Sam’s Sports Brief @SamsSportsBrief
19. Titans 4-4 The Titans lost to the Bengals last week by 1 TD. If this team want’s to be a playoff team, CJ needs to pick it up and have some 100-yard games. Until then, this team isn’t going anywhere.
20. Redskins 3-5 The ‘Skins took another step back with a loss in San Francisco. Since John Beck took over as starter, they have been just fantastic with an 0-3 record! It’s either Good Rex, Bad Rex, or John Beck (or David Garrard)… It’s decision time for the shenanigans, or should I say Shanahanagins? Sam’s Sports Brief @SamsSportsBrief
21. Raiders 4-4 Wow, this is bad. The Raiders lost to the BRONCOS last week 38-24. I don’t know what to think of this team anymore. I heard Darren McFadden is out this week vs. the Chargers, which doesn’t help.
22. Panthers 2-6 Cam Newton and the Panthers are coming off of their bye week. Although Cam Newton has looked great this year, breaking records upon records, the rest of the Panthers have been slightly below par. They are 2-6, and Newton’s supporting cast better step it up if they want to finish with a decent record. Sam’s Sports Brief @SamsSportsBrief
23. Browns 3-5
The Browns lost to the Texans 30-12. Who expected them to win this game anyway? Peyton Hillis is turning into an asshole.
24. Redskins 3-5
im Tebow Tebowed his way to a Broncos victory against the Raiders. I am one of the few Tebow believers. He lacks some of the skills of a established NFL quarterback, but man, is this guy a winner or what? The Broncos are a subpar team overall, as only the 0-9 Colts have allowed more points this year than the Broncos.  Sam’s Sports Brief @SamsSportsBrief
25. Cardinals 3-6 The Cardinals won in glorious fashion last week (Pat Pet punt return in OT). I see a lot of potential for him as well as this team going forward.
26. Jaguars 2-6 The Jags are coming off of their bye this week. With Blaine Gabbert’s mediocre play leading the Jaguars to a 2-6 record, the question must be asked: Why on Earth was David Garrard released? Sam’s Sports Brief @SamsSportsBrief
27. Rams 2-6 The Rams almost had their 2nd win of the season, but they lost to the Cardinals in OT. I can’t describe how bad this team is.
28. Vikings 2-6
 The Vikings are another team that had their bye this week. So far, Christian Ponder has looked first-rate, and he will face a gigantic test this Monday Night in Green Bay. Can the 2-6 Vikings turn their season around?  Sam’s Sports Brief @SamsSportsBrief
29. Seahawks 1-7  The Seahawks lost to the Cowboys last week and are not looking good.
30. Dolphins 1-7 Even though the Dolphins won their first game last week, they’re still ranked as the 4th worst team in the league. I don’t see them winning any more games. 
31. Dolphins 0-7 The Fins almost pulled out a win in NY last week vs the G-Men and Reggie Bush rushed for his second career 100 yard game. If they could only fix the passing game on both sides of the ball they may may have had a chance to pull out a couple of wins this season. A visit to noisy Arrowhead Stadium looms ahead. @TheKnoxScore  DBSports
32. Colts 0-8 The Colts are a mess. They have a 2.2% chance of becoming the second team in NFL history to go 0-16. But hey, they’re halfway there! @SamsSportsBrief Sam’s Sports Brief

  6. Again, nothing to complain about in terms of the rankings. Although the Bengals are high, they have the record to back it up, although I expect them to slide in the next five weeks.
